Flea Market Finds

Indian rugs, Moroccan tiles, woven baskets

Last weekend my husband and I were able to get away and head down to Long Beach for the flea market they hold there once a month.  I always want to go, but you now how things get - all of a sudden another month has gone by, and I didn't make it again.  So I was thrilled when we actually got to go!

I could buy a million things's so much fun to root through all the "treasures".  Here is a collection of my favorites from February!

Above photos - clockwise from top right:
1.) Moroccan Tiles - Gorgeous as coasters on coffee table or lined up along a windowsill or wall shelf
2.) Woven baskets - perfect for a picnic or a day at the beach...or flea marketing!
3.) Indian Rug - beautiful colors, good prices.

Clockwise from top left:
1.) Brass lamps - the little children frolicking would look so chic in modern nursery and they must be paired with black lamp shades!
2.) Brass Basket - You can never have too many of these.  Use as a magazine holder, trash bin, toy catchall...
3.) Geodes -  I LOVE rocks! These would make gorgeous paperweights or would look pretty sitting on a stack of coffee table books.
4.) 4 Poster Twin Beds - So fun for a children's room.  These were jet black and tall...they made quite a statement!

Clockwise from top left:
1.) Light up signs - this booth had all sorts of different signs that lit up with mini Edison bulbs.  We saw one that was a cursive LOVE and we almost pulled the trigger for Bean's nursery.
2.) Woven chairs - a set of 4 unique woven chairs.  These would be great on a covered porch, or at a breakfast nook.
3.) Mini woven chair - this chair is tiny.  Child size. I loved it.  Fell head over heels for it! Didn't buy it. What was I thinking?!?!?!
4.) Blush dresser - this dresser was much more muted in person than it looks here!  I took this photo for Kacey - her nursery colors include blush cute!

Clockwise from top left:
1.) Jewelry Box - Such a precious addition to any dresser top or vanity.  Little drawers that hold your most prized jewels.
2.) Brass candlestick - nuff said.
3.) Ships Wheel - I think this would be super cute in a nautical themed nursery or kids bedroom (or adults room!) Hung on a dark or emerald green...would make quite a statement.
4.) Leather bar stools - comfy, stylish, simple.

And finally:
1.) Gold plated flatware set -  Always a fun addition to dinner parties
2.) Rattan side table - this would add a ton of character to any room.

If only my house were big enough :)
